I often run out of tape before I run out of bar. No big deal. I just wrap again, reducing the overlap. When I use "permanent" tape (such as leather), I don't want to cut off the excess, so sometimes I end up with too much tape at the end, so I have to rewrap, increasing the overlap. It can take a few trials and errors. It's part of the process.
